Purpose: To help schools and communities became aware of the complexity
of the alcohol and drug-abuse problem and develop strategies to attack
its causes rather than merely its symptoms. The program strongly encourages
a coordinated school-community effort in preventive education, with an
emphasis on reducing the socially disruptive behaviors often associated
with abuse*

Method of Operation; Contracts are awarded to five Regional Training
and Resource Centers. These centers award subcontracts to public school
districts and private schools for training school teams in devising and
applying methods of dealing with each team's unique alcohol and drug
abuse problems. The ultimate beneficiaries of this training are students
in grades 7-12; the training is provided at the regional centers. The
remaining program funds support a contractor that provides a national
data base and program support and collects evaluation data from subcon-
tractors.
